An Underwater Easter Egg Hunt in Southern Indiana in April [VIDEOS]
It was a long time ago, but I once learned how to scuba dive. It was only in swimming pools--the YMCA and Blue Meridian Dive Center--but it was STILL scuba diving. I even played Monopoly under water...and was no better at it than when I've played on dry land.
EASTER EGG HUNTS
It was a lot of fun and I've always wanted to do it again, but I'd have to be retaught just about everything. I don't know that I'd need all that gear if I was diving below the surface to find Easter eggs, though. It might be considered an unfair advantage. Plus, I doubt I'd need to be down there long enough to retrieve. Plus, I've aged out of qualifying for it.
After all, it's an Easter egg hunt.
HUNTING FOR EASTER EGGS UNDER WATER
I'm too old, but your kids certainly aren't. And how much fun would they have combining splashing around in a pool with finding Easter eggs? It's a terrific idea and it DOES sound like a lot of fun. So take a pastel Sharpie and circle April 16th on the calendar, or do it the old-fashioned way and set up a notification on your smartphone and get ready for an Aquatic's Easter Egg Hunt at the Dunigan Family YMCA Pool on Oak Grove Road in Evansville.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE AQUATIC'S EASTER EGG HUNT
You'll be able to take pictures with your kids and the Easter Bunny, and, best of all, you can join them in the pool to find weighted Easter eggs at the bottom. And yes, if your children are under 10 years of age, you'll need to join them. But who wouldn't want to do that, right?
UNDERWATER EASTER EGG HUNTS HAVE BEEN AROUND A WHILE
I had never heard of such a thing, but I'm running late, apparently. These underwater Easter egg hunts have been a thing--and a POPULAR thing--for quite a while.
I can't locate when the first one happened, but they CURRENTLY happen all over the country--even the Florida Keys.
Now THAT is what I call an underwater Easter egg hunt venue. But you don't have to go that far. You just have to make your way to Evansville on April 16th.
Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail...swim fins and all.
